Real estate agents have gotten a bad reputation as â€œsalespeopleâ€ who hold selfish interests in your home. On the other end of the spectrum, successful and reliable agents, while experts in marketing and sales, are experts in negotiation and advisement when you are selling or buying your home.
Knowing what to look for and how to pick an agent will ensure that the process goes seamlessly and quickly. Many horror stories have circled about agents pushing expensive listings (that yield maximum commission), their own listings, or demanding that buyers make decisions on few options before they are ready to do so.
The most important aspect of the buying or selling process is knowing how to pick an agent who will keep your best interests in mind.
Make sure that you mesh well with the personality of your agent. You will inevitably spend a lot of time with your agent discussing deals whether youâ€™re buying or selling.
Trust must be established with an agent that you get along with before a successful transaction can occur on either side of a deal.
Choose an agent that has experience in selling real estate in general as well as in your desired area. An experienced agent that specializes in one area in particular is usually the first to know about great deals in your desired neighborhood, often before they come onto the market.
What should you ask your real estate agent?
Is this your full time job?
An agent can only dedicate as much time to your listing or finding you the right home as they spend working day to day. Find a dedicated agent who will be working for you when you need them and not on a part time basis when it suits them.
What are the comparable sales in the area?
By knowing how much the surrounding homes are selling for, as a buyer you can make a competitive offer. As a seller, you can set a reasonable sales price.
In short, choose an agent with knowledge and experience. The most market savvy individuals who see your relationship as lifelong are the right people to guide you through the process.
